Oh, does the compatFirmware has to be exactly the used Firmware? I changed it from 2.5.0 to 2.5.2 and now it works.

How can i remove the "buy"-button in the library?

I set the two options and i dont see shop and wishlist. But i noticed, that the buy-button only appears beside "faked" kepub books which i sent to glo via calibre before i updated from 2.2.1 to 2.5.2.

You might have a look at this thread, especially post 8.

mmh, I see the wishlist at the bottom of the home screen (in the centre) and the bookstore is still there (to the right of "Reading" in the Home screen, above the covers): what do you get in that place?

Paola,

I'm on firmware 2.5.1 so it works with recent firmwares, and whenever you shutdown or reboot, you must press Library then Books(or other option) and the home icon to see the effects of the hideshop and hidewishlist statements if they are in the kobotweaks.ini file and set to true. Nicely removes the clutter.

Thanks Technisol, I've done all that and changed the kobotweaks.ini accordingly, and all the commands in my launcher work, but I still see the wishlist and the bookstore, so I thought these were broken. Maybe it's the Mini (I also have an offset problem: the "Tools" menu is shifted vertically by an inch or so, and the top commands go off screen) or maybe it is me.

I'd be curious to see a picture of a homescreen with wishlit and bookstore off, but I know taking pictures is a pain. And in my case, though I don't remember how the screen looked like, it did work with previous firmware versions (I am on 2.5.2 now, but did not work on 2.5.1 and the one previously either).

Oh, my bad, perhaps it is the mini. It sounded like you had forgotten to init the plug-in. I forgot you had it going earlier in the thread and had mentioned the menu issue. Perhaps the home screen code is different for the mini.

I suppose it could be worse, the 2.5.1 version I have running on the Glo won't let me back to the home screen without a power cycle if I enter the BOOKSTORE and so much as search for anything. It will not display the READING BOOKSTORE options on the top of the main BOOKSTORE screen upon returning from any of the bookstore functions(though they are there initially) and the home button keeps you on the same page as well. All this without even initializing the tweaks plug in. Downright Barmy.

good to know! I'd hate the power cycle, so will make sure I don't browse the shop from my ereader, thanks!

This is totally a newb question, but is it necessary to uninstall any add-ons like Kobo Tweaks, The Glo Night Mode, or KOReader or KindlePDFReader before doing a firmware upgrade? My guess is the upgrade simply writes over and you end up re-installing the tweaks?

well, I newer re-loaded any hack after a firmware update - perhaps I should try that to see whether my offset problem goes away. But as for the rest, my impression is that if the firmware "breaks" a hack it does so regardless of how you install it, but of course I may be wrong!

No need to uninstall the hacks. You'll have to edit kobotweaks.ini to reflect the new firmware version, of course, but the only hack as of now that you need to reinstall after an upgrade is Night Mode. Everything else should still work even after upgrading.

Just out of curiosity, how many items do you have in your list, Paola? Does the number of items have any effect on the offset? On my Glo, the menu is only offset by around 10 pixels. It wouldn't be hard for me to change how the list is positioned, but I don't know why the offset is so large on the Mini.

Hi have reboot, sleep, night mode, scribble, luncher and koreader - had not thought the number of items could be an issue, I'll change it and report back, thanks for the suggestion!
